Gordon Ramsay is not widely known for his vegan cuisine, but it seems the chef is clearly listening to what his customers want, as he is coming up with some stunning vegan hacks these days. This vegan BLThas been hailed by some of his followers as a genius lunch option.

Impossible and various iterations of the plant-based burger have made a good stab at filling the patty-shaped hole in the vegan diet, and while there are some vegan baconoptions out there, the vegan BLT is something that has yet to be perfected.
Ramsay comes to the rescue with this Instagram reel of the recipe for his 'Vegan Summer BLT'. He replicates crispy, salty, streaky bacon by cutting rice paper into strips and sandwiching spiced tofu between them. Baked in the oven, these tofu strips look and taste similar to the bacon in your BLT.
